Marys­town Fire Depart­ment and RCMP help stock food banks

The Southern Gazette - - EDITORIAL -

Fire­fight­ers and po­lice of­fi­cers in Marys­town took time from their al­ready busy sched­ules to once again help the com- mu­nity re­cently.

The Marys­town Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment col­lected some 36 crates of food and nearly $1,300 dur­ing its an­nual food drive on Nov. 26.

This year, the Burin Penin­sula RCMP came on board to lend as- sis­tance and sup­port.

Do­na­tions sites were set up out­side Sobeys, No Frills and Wal-Mart in Marys­town.

Fire­fight­ers and po­lice of­fi­cers pre­sented the do­na­tions to the Sa­cred Heart Fam­ily Aid and Sal­va­tion Army foods banks.
